George is going to Spain with his mum (and his teddy bear) to see his Uncle Teddy. It is his first time on a plane. George (who narrates the story in very simple and minimal language) describes check in and security, and how the plane takes-off with a loud roar. George enjoys his in-flight meal, and looking out of the window at the clouds below. He draws pictures and shows them to a member of the cabin crew. They collect their luggage and are met by Uncle Teddy at arrivals.
It appears that George is travelling with just his mother (no other parent is shown) so it may be a good choice for anyone looking for books featuring single-parent families. Toddlers will enjoy looking out for George’s teddy bear, who has quite a few adventures of his own (at one point he is shown riding on the baggage carousel and shouting ‘Oooooo…er!’) Nicola Smee’s colourful illustrations should certainly appeal to young children.
